God, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll: A recipe for Republican buyer's remorse in the general election

Excerpted from this post at God, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll

The Democratic Strategist explores and expands upon the idea that the
Republican candidates all have "near-disqualifying weaknesses" (a
phrase coined by Ross Douthat in the Atlantic over the weekend) We can
list them (and both of the above links do, in more detail than I will
include here): Huckabee: DuMond, weird ideas about AIDS, no love from
the establishment conservatives. Giuliani: Judy, sex in the Hamptons,
too "New York liberal" for some. Thompson: lazy, boring, old and
wrinkly. Romney: expectations too high in IA and NH, the whole Mormon
thing, flip-flopping.
